Google introduce Currents for Android and iOS


Last night Google introduced another new service that is only available to Americans. This time it is a magazine reader that has more than 150 different publishers on board. Google are certainly building up a decent range of products (for Americans) to rival Amazon and Apple. This also will no doubt dent the niche that Zinio had carved out for themselves as Currents will no doubt soon appear in the Market like the books did the other month. Here is a nice video showing you what you are missing out on.

There are already apk’s for the app popping up on the internet. But by the looks of it you will just get to browse a load of American stuff. Hopefully we will get our hands on this soon and bring a more in-depth look at currents.

    It’s fine if you just want to skim the news, or play around with trending — but as a Google Reader app, it’s useless.  Doesn’t mark articles as ‘read’, makes you pick each particular feed you want included, no option to just incorporate >all< of your Reader feeds.

    With luck, Google has something similar in the works more specific to Reader use.
